      SUAMICO - The NEW Zoo in Suamico has a new internet video star - Rollie the 3-banded armadillo.

      A zoo internĀ uploaded a video of Rollie playing with a toy to YouTube in May. As of Wednesday morning, more than 821,000 people have watched it. Click here to watch the video.

      The shell of the 3-banded armadillo is made of keratin, which is the same thing that makes up human fingernails.

      The 3-banded armadillo can roll up in a ball as a defense mechanism against predators. Its head plate is unique, like a human fingerprint. It can be used to identify each individual armadillo.
